Nightmare Fredbear, after jumpscaring the player in Ultimate Custom Night.,

Nightmare Fredbear is a nightmare animatronic who first appeared in Five Nights at Freddy's 4. He is the nightmarish variant of Fredbear, who is the mascot of the old Fredbear's Family Diner location.

Physical Appearance

A giant, terrifying version of the Fredbear we've been seeing in the mini-games. This tattered and torn bear animatronic has golden fur and wears a purple hat and bow tie.
The Freddy Files, page 100,


Out of all the nightmare animatronics (except for Nightmare and Nightmare Balloon Boy), Nightmare Fredbear appears to be the least damaged. He is slightly stout and bulkier than the other nightmare animatronics. Bearing such monstrous appearance, he is a mottled golden color with various splotches of brown and has many tears and holes in his suit. He wears a pink/purple bowtie and small top hat with a black stripe. Furthermore, he has two black buttons on his chest which is similar to BB's from Five Nights at Freddy's 2. He has a large head with puffy cheeks, exposed gums in dark color, squarish muzzle, and a wide mouth full of long, sharp teeth.

His head, like all the other nightmare animatronics, also appears to be separated into two parts. His small eyes are grey and metallic with red irises and has several long wires poking out from each of his eyes in the form of eyelashes. His claws are silver-colored and razor-sharp, keeping with the nightmare animatronic motif. The hands both have exactly the same design as Springtrap and the other nightmare animatronics. Furthermore, his hands are bigger with fingers (except for both thumbs) colored in brown. As with all the other nightmare animatronics, his kneecaps as well as shoulder pads are missing, and has a large hole located from the lower part of his left thigh. Most of the fur on his ears is missing. His stomach is round with dark brown coloring and a large slit at the lower part armed with a set of razor-sharp fangs. He also has what appears to be a reddish tint at the roots of his teeth, possibly referencing the fact that Fredbear is the culprit of the Bite of '83.

In Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted, Nightmare Fredbear's suit appears to be more desaturated compared to his appearance in previous games, appearing to be a more brownish and pale color. His pupils are also orange-yellow instead of red in some instances, such as when his model is viewed in the Gallery.

Personality

Described as the complete opposite of the original Fredbear in terms of behavior, Nightmare Fredbear is a monstrous animatronic who enjoys nothing more than tormenting his victims when the opportunity arises. Nightmare Fredbear also appears to share a similar demeanor to the Fredbear plush from the fourth game's minigames but a little more warped. His voice resembles several other voices rolled into one.

Appearances

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

Fnaf4 jumpscare fredbearinroom

Nightmare Fredbear attacking the player, animated.

Nightmare Fredbear will appear in Night 5 (for the full night) and Night 6 (from 4 AM onward). When active, no other animatronics will attack which, to a degree, can simplify things.

Nightmare Fredbear will approach from either the Left Hall or Right Hall. When looking at him in the halls, flicking the Flashlight off and on will cause him to approach while closing the door will make him retreat back around the corner. At random points throughout the game, the player will hear Nightmare Fredbear laugh loudly, which means that his head will appear either on the Bed (at which point the player must simply shine the Flashlight on him for a brief period of time) or in the Closet (at which point the player simply has to close the door for a brief period of time). While warding him off in these situations, Nightmare Fredbear will make a loud screech sound. But be aware, if the player hears laughing and footsteps, then Nightmare Fredbear is not in the Closet or on the Bed. If the player flashes the light on him and runs to the center of the Bedroom or closes the doors afterwards, the player will die. There is no known way of escaping this, which is why the player must flash the light on him and quickly close the door until his footsteps signify that he has left that location.

To defend against Nightmare Fredbear's attack, the player must pay close attention to the sounds he makes as he runs to tell which direction he's going. Therefore, it is crucial to use stereo speakers or headphones with the sound turned up to an acceptable level. Likewise, the player can also hear when Nightmare Fredbear has left the door in a similar manner and can return to the middle of the Bedroom.

Ultimate Custom Night

He is invisible to the cameras and can only be seen when he reaches your left doorway. Close the door on his face to send him back into the darkness!

Nightmare Fredbear Jumpscare

Nightmare Fredbear attacking the Player, animated.

Nightmare Fredbear returns in Ultimate Custom Night as one of the selectable characters.

When active, Nightmare Fredbear will approach the player from the left hall. He is completely undetectable until he appears at the left door. The player is able to tell if he is at the door by hearing his laughter on the left side and his glowing eyes showing through the door. The player needs to close the left door quickly until he's gone, or else he will jumpscare the player, resulting in a game over.

Upon death, Nightmare Fredbear will speak in a distorted tone, informing the player that he intends to make them suffer in multiple ways as possible.

The challenges in which Nightmare Fredbear is present are as follows:

  • Bears Attack 1
  • Bears Attack 2
  • Bears Attack 3
  • Nightmares Attack
  • Chaos 1

Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

NightmareFredbearvrwikiplaceholderuntilwegetfiles

Nightmare Fredbear attacking the player, animated.

Nightmare Fredbear appears in the last Night Terrors level, which plays similar to Funtime Freddy and Nightmarionne's levels. If Nightmare Fredbear is at the doors or the closet, then the player must hold the doors shut on him, and if he's on the bed, then the player must hold their flashlight on him to make leave. Failure to repel Nightmare Fredbear results in him entering the bedroom and attacking the player.

Nightmare Endo

Nightmare Endo

Nightmare Endo in Ennard's Vent Repair.

Nightmare Endo is the endoskeleton of Nightmare Fredbear who technically debuts in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 and returned as an minor antagonist in Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted. It is a tall and massive metal skeleton with huge bent claws and razor-sharp teeth.

Behavior

Nightmare Endo appears in the gameplay only once (except for its appearance in The Gallery) in the Ennard's Vent Repair level. It can be seen if you look under the grill, in the place where the player stands, however as soon as the light from the flashlight falls on the character , it will immediately disappear from sight, leaving no trace.

Physical Appearance

Unlike Endo-01 and Endo-02, it has very thick, complex limbs, specially extended in order to steadily hold a bulky body. There are five large, long fingers on his clawed hands, like other nightmarish animatronics, and small steel vertebrae are soldered in line on his back, he also out-of-place long, sharp teeth on each of it's jaws, rendering it seemingly impossible for the endoskeleton to close it's mouth.

FNaF4

  • Nightmare Fredbear and Nightmare Foxy are the only nightmares to have the "making of" slideshow from the Extra menu.
  • According to a Steam post by Scott Cawthon, the character that took the most time to model was Nightmare Fredbear, which took a week.[1]
    • However, after Sister Location, another post confirms that either Baby or Ballora are the hardest, and also including their endoskeleton.[2]
  • The reddish tint at the roots of Nightmare Fredbear's teeth may be a reference to the Night 5 end-of-night minigame in Five Nights at Freddy's 4, where Fredbear's jaws crush the skull of the player.
  • Nightmare Fredbear and Nightmare are less aggressive in the mobile version, making Night 5 and onward much easier than the PC version.
  • Interestingly, Nightmare Fredbear's feet are reused and recolored from Nightmare Freddy's.
  • In the teaser image featuring his torso, the "name" source code on the website (at the time) was “gsfecfbs". If decrypted, the word "Fredbear" was revealed.
    • When brightened, the words “or was it me” can be seen on the left side of the image. Smaller text can be seen in Fredbear’s stomach, with the middle of the phrase missing. This text reads “pro... me”.
    • The same teaser image depicts Fredbear with a black suit.
  • Nightmare Fredbear’s laugh can sometimes be heard from a distance on nights where he is not active, as can be heard here.
  • If Nightmare Fredbear's laughs are sped up to 2.5 speed, they reveal to sound like a child laughing as heard here.
  • It is possible to complete a night while in the middle of Nightmare Fredbear's jumpscare, as seen here.

Errors

  • Nightmare Fredbear seems to have two black buttons on his body. However, when his full body is shown via Extra, the buttons are now black and white. It is unknown why this occurs, but it could just be an error with the lighting.
    • This also applies to BB from the second game where he enters The Office.
  • When Nightmare Fredbear appears at the Right Hall, some of his claws are clipping through his thighs.
    • His hat also seems to be clipping in the ceiling light.
  • When he is in the closet, if one looks closely his torso is clipping through the floor, this is hard to spot however because of the lighting.

UCN

  • Nightmare Fredbear is one of two characters who can only get into the office from the left door, the other being Freddy Fazbear.
  • Nightmare Fredbear's death quotes seem to reference the Fredbear Plush from Five Nights at Freddy's 4.
  • From the Character Guide announcement on the game's Steam page, Scott describes the mechanics for Nightmare Fredbear along with Nightmare:

This tag-team duo are invisible to the cameras and can only be seen when they reach your doorways (Fredbear takes left, Nightmare takes right), and even then only their eyes are visible. Close the doors on their faces to send them back into the darkness![3]
{{{2}}},

  • There is an early version of Nightmare Fredbear's and Nightmare's description:

Working in tandem, Nightmare Fredbear and Nightmare are invisible to the player until they reach the doors, where only their eyes will then be visible. For Nightmare Fredbear's case, the player needs to close the left door on his face to send him back into the darkness!
{{{2}}},


FNaF VR

  • In the trailer, Nightmare Fredbear had brown fur and a black top hat/bow tie, similar to Nightmare Freddy, rather than the yellow/gold fur and purple top hat/bow tie that he had in all other games.
    • According to Scott, this was because the trailer was made a long time ago, and the models were unfinished at the time, which explains Nightmare Fredbear's off color scheme.
    • Nightmare Fredbear also emitted the jumpscare sound used by Plushtrap and Nightmare BB when they jumpscare the player in "Fun With Plushtrap" and "Fun With Balloon Boy" from Five Nights at Freddy's 4, but it is unknown why this is the case.
  • Nightmare Fredbear is the only enemy in the Night Terrors levels to not mutter any voice lines while active. Instead, he only emits his laughter from Five Nights at Freddy's 4.
